South Park have announced that manager Malcolm Porter will be leaving his role at the end of the season due to his ‘increasing business commitments.’

Porter, who has been with the club as a player, coach, assistant manager and manager for 18 years, will still be involved as a director but informed the committee a few months ago that he may not be able to continue beyond the end of the season, and confirmed his decision last month.

South Park chairman Ricky Kidd stated:

“It is with great sadness that we announce Malcolm’s decision to step down as first team manager of South Park. He has been an integral part of this club’s progress over the past 18 years and is a very popular figure.

“His drive, enthusiasm and motivation along with his ability to get the very best out of players has helped us get where we are today. The committee fully understand his reasons for stepping down and were aware of his new business venture- and we wish him well in that.”
